1989 Chevrolet C1500 Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Chevrolet's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Chevrolet C1500? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your C1500 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my C1500's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Chevrolet C1500 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Chevrolet. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
